Quick follow-up for y'all. I fired up the engine a couple of weeks ago or so and did not see any output from the new B&C alternator. When I debugged it, I found a blown fuse on the field wire. This morning, I ran the engine and the alternator worked like a champ, pumping out about 15 amps.
Thanks for the advice.

What kind of ov protection? If you're
using a B&C regulator or one of the
several crowbar ov protection modules,
upstream power for the field should be
on a PANEL MOUNTED BREAKER . . . not
a fuse.

Bob​,
You are absolutely right, of course. I discovered that a month ago, after I hooked everything up according to Z-13 and then actually read the installation instructions for the B&C voltage regulator. Installing the breaker is high on my to-do list.
​Thanks for the eagle-eye.
